Hi Ukulele Players!  You may have notice no action here for a while from me.  I was knocked out by health for a while but am on the road to recovery and look forward to catching up on posted videos and content.  It's great to be back!  Let's play!

Best, Marcy Marxer

"In looking into groups that played Tiple, I found a group from the late 30's - early 40's that play used THREE Tiples, going by the name "Spirits Of Rhythm"  on Youtube, WOW! I ordered a CD of them that should be here next…"

"My Lyra has a Mandolin style tail piece so I have to cut the " ball ends" out to make "loop" ends. Seeing the pictures of your Regal, I see they are "pinned" through the bridge like a guitar, so I see why you tune C6.…"

"I have an old Regal.  I'm not brave enough to tune it up to D6.  I keep it in C6 and it's great.  I posted some photos."

Donnie Dunn commented on Marcy Marxer's group Tenor Guitar
"I've been out of the loop for awhile, but while I've been gone, I've picked up a 1965 Harmony H1215 Tenor archtop that I tune like an Octave Mandolin. It's a great addition to the Martin 0-17 tenor that I tune like a Mandola."

I was fortunate to talk to a guy who is a Tiple player and he hooked me up with the right strings, and told me to tune it up to "D'' and I'd fall in love…See More
